Benefits of using our BACS accredited bureau

We can pay staff salaries, 3rd party and HMRC payments on your behalf.

It is important to note that you will need a BACS user number to utilize this service. Some maintained schools may not have access to their own bank account and therefore cannot benefit from this service - if you are unsure at this stage, it is important to check with your LA before proceeding.
